Weekly Announcements


ANGELS OF HOPE: Yes, it’s that time of the year once again for the annual Chicagoland Prison Outreach Angels of Hope Christmas! This is a great opportunity to share Christ’s love through this Christmas gift giving event by purchasing and giving Christmas gifts to children and families of Cook County inmates. The gifts will need to be back here at church by November 26th. Mark your calendars for our wrapping party Sunday, December 3rd after worship in Fellowship Hall.

ADVENT BIBLE STUDY: Wednesdays at 10:00-11:30 A.M. beginning November 29 (December 6, 13, 20). We will immerse ourselves into the “Christmas In the Four Gospel Homes” by Cynthia M. Campbell. All are welcome. We’ll learn together. The sign-up sheet is in the Narthex. Any questions, just ask facilitator Patricia Spring-Hodges.

STEWARDSHIP: Just a friendly reminder to turn in your 2024 pledge card ASAP, if you haven’t already done so! We are working on preparing the 2024 budget for our upcoming Church Conference, so having those numbers would be very helpful. If you are in need of a new card, contact the office or there are some in the back of the sanctuary.

CHOIR PRACTICE: We will meet for practice each week before worship beginning at 8:45 a.m. ALL ARE WELCOME TO JOIN US! For more information, see Millie Watland.
NOTE: There will be no choir practice Sunday 11/26.

BOOK CART: The Book Cart is back! Selections for children and adults, plus jig-saw puzzles and games to borrow, enjoy, and return. And feel free to add to the cart at any time. The Book Cart is located in Fellowship Hall near the piano. Any questions, ask Patricia Spring-Hodges. Enjoy!

CHURCH CONFERENCE: Our annual Church Conference will be on Sunday, December 3rd at 5:30 p.m. SPRC will meet at 5 p.m.

A MESSAGE FROM VITAS HEALTHCARE: We have many senior knitters/crocheters who are on a fixed income who would still like to make blankets for our hospice patients, but cannot afford yearn or material. Our yarn supply is getting low and we could use more for our seniors. Your support makes a difference! There will be a collection box in the narthex if you have yarn to donate!
